Everyday Online and eVisits

Allina Health offers two quick and convenient online questionnaire-based care options – Everyday Online and eVisits.

Everyday Online is available for most common conditions 24/7. Both new and existing patients can use this service. You will get a treatment plan from a provider in one hour or less. With eVisits, you can get health guidance directly from your primary care provider from home or on the go without being seen in person.

Insurance coverage and cost

Online visits cost $49, or your insurance co-pay, whichever is less. This cost does not include necessary prescriptions, over-the-counter treatments or follow-up visits you may need. 

You may submit your receipt to your insurance company, but we cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed. Everyday Online is not currently reimbursable with Medicare.


Everyday Online providers are licensed and able to prescribe certain medications as part of your care plan, if clinically appropriate, but are unable to prescribe pain medications or narcotics. If a prescription medication is part of your treatment plan, you can send it to your pharmacy. Allina Health Everyday Online is not an online pharmacy and does not fill prescriptions.

About eVisits

Consider an eVisit when you need quick, secure and convenient online care from a provider you’ve seen before. You can start an eVisit for non-emergency care from home or on the go instead of scheduling an appointment. An Allina Health account is required to access eVisits.

You’ll fill out a questionnaire about your symptoms, and your provider (or a provider you have seen) will respond with a personalized care plan within three business days. 

Keep in mind that eVisits should only be used for non-urgent medical conditions and mental health concerns. In a medical or mental health emergency, call 911 immediately.

Are eVisits available for children?

An eVisit for a patient who is aged 12 or under may be submitted by the patient’s parent or legal guardian. Note: If you submit an eVisit for a minor child, you attest you are a parent and/or legal guardian and have the legal right to access the child’s medical information and to complete an eVisit on the child’s behalf.

What conditions can be treated with an eVisit?

  • back pain 
  • birth control evaluation
  • cough
  • headache 
  • heartburn
  • pink eye 
  • sinus problems 
  • urinary tract infection
  • vaginal discharge or irritation

How do eVisits work?

  • Fill out a short questionnaire to describe your symptoms, typically taking 15-20 minutes.
  • Upload pictures, if applicable to your condition.
  • Update your medication, allergy and insurance information.
  • Submit your questionnaire to be reviewed by your provider or another provider you have seen. If the provider you select is out of the office, a different provider within your provider’s practice may reply.
  • Receive a diagnosis and personal care plan via your Allina Health Account within three business days.

Note: Some conditions are not suitable for an eVisit. You will not be charged for an eVisit if your provider recommends other care.

When are eVisits available?

You may submit an eVisit at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you submit your question at a time when your provider isn't in the office, you'll hear back from your provider during their regular office hours.

How quickly will I receive results?

You will receive results within three business days. If you’re having trouble with your eVisit, please call the Customer Experience Center at: 1-888-425-5462.

How much does an eVisit cost?

Your eVisit costs $49, which will be billed after the visit, and may be covered by insurance. You’ll enter your payment information after completing a short questionnaire. Some conditions are not suitable for an eVisit. If we recommend other care, you will not be charged for an eVisit.

Talk with your insurance provider about medical coverage before scheduling an eVisit. 

Who will provide my care?

You will choose from a list of providers you have seen before. If your preferred provider is out of the office, a different provider in the same practice group may reply.
